TROY, Mich., – Rehmann, a fully integrated financial services and advisory firm, has been named among Best Firms for Equity Leadership. This is the first time Rehmann has received this recognition which is reserved for those firms in which women account for at least 30 percent of their owner and principal group.  

Since 2010, the Accounting MOVE Project has measured and supported the advancement of women at accounting and consulting firms. Currently, MOVE is the only annual benchmarking project that quantifies women’s progress in the profession.

“We appreciate the Accounting MOVE Project’s important work as it pertains to measuring and advancing the progress of women in our field. At Rehmann, we strive to actively create opportunities for the growth and development of women at our firm, and this recognition is an indicator that we are on the right trajectory.” Said, Katie Strehler, Chief Talent Officer at Rehmann.

Based on the MOVE methodology, developed by research partner Wilson-Taylor Associates, Inc., the Accounting MOVE Project investigates the factors proven to be essential to women’s career success including fair pay practices; advancement and leadership development; work-life programs that remove barriers; and operating experience for managing or business ownership.

Rehmann was recognized for the firm’s cross-departmental opportunities and potential alliances in client support groups, offering a spiral of growth for women at the firm.

“The findings of this year’s report solidify that women are extending positive change into the financial workforce by creating new initiatives and client retention with creativity and leadership,” said Cindy Stanley, executive director for the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance (AFWA), the association partner for the Accounting MOVE Project. “The unique perspectives and reliability of women in finance will continue to create new streams of opportunity and pave the way for progress.”

Rehmann has received the Accounting MOVE recognition eight years in a row, and Chief Operating Officer Stacie Kwaiser was recently named among Crain’s Detroit’s 2020 Notable Women in Finance. The full 2020 Accounting MOVE project report can be viewed here.
